I went to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas for my Massage Therapy training. I studied the benefits and techniques of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, and Warm Stone. However, I took a special interest in Prenatal massage as my daughter at the time was due to have a baby. I was blessed with the knowledge of understanding pressure points to stimulate the start of labor on her due date! I was able to comfort her and help with the delivery as well!

When I moved to Colorado, I helped open and was the original massage therapist for the Spa of the Rockies in 2008. Over the five plus years I worked there, I became known as the Prenatal Queen and received many awards and recognition. I have worked in a hospital, chiropractic offices, and spas.

The benefits of massage not only relaxes, but also helps with headaches, reduce stress, helps the body to recover after surgery, warm stone massage is great for fibromyalgia, arthritis, and increases circulation and to help flush out toxins that may have clogged in the muscles.
